In exploring the interplay between domestic spaces and the allure of the outdoors, these photographs encourage us to reimagine our relationship with gender. They challenge gender norms associated with domesticity by juxtaposing decaying interiors with the beauty of the natural world.
The decaying interiors symbolize the limitations and expectations imposed on individuals based on their gender. However, through the apertures in the background, we catch a glimpse of nature, offering hope and the possibility of breaking free from these constraints. Nature also symbolizes freedom, growth, and a connection to the broader world, inviting viewers to reflect on transcending societal expectations and embracing personal self-expression beyond traditional gender roles.
